By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON (NEA) - In spite of all its difficulties, the United Nations is now said to be beginning to find its way around. In the opinion of Harlan Cleveland, assistant secretary of state for international organization affairs, this is particularly true of the U.N. specialized agency programs in the developing countries that need help the most. r The popular impression of the U.N. is that it is as clumsy and unsure of itself as most teenagers. It is badly financed. It is not as well staffed as it should be because the principle of a completely impartial, international civil service has not yet been established. Also, the split between communist and free nations makes complete co-operation impossible. It may take the rest of this century for all these flaws of igrams organization to be worked out by meaningful charter revision and the slow evolution of what U.N. can and can't do. ONE OF THE Cleveland encouraging signs, Cleveland believes, is found in the appointment of U.N. ' 'Resident Representatives" to co-ordinate programs in countries being given the world organization's specialized agency technical assistance. There are now 61 of these U.N. resident representatives serving in the developing countries. They act as top advisers to government officials in the countries to which they are assigned and oversee the work of two or more aid programs. In some countries the resident representative is given diplomatic status and ranked as an important consultant. In other countries he is considered just a liaison officer or a technician with a special mission in his own field of competence. There is no established protocol governing the rank or responsibility of a resident representative. None is a native of the country to which he is assigned. George Ivan Smith, an Australian, is mentioned by Cleveland as a typical resident representative doing an outstanding job in Tanganyika. Present practice is for the resident representative to be appointed by the head of the U.N.

Somo of the reforms suggested last year to Secretary General U Thant are now being put into effect. The final report, still in preparation, will deal with U.N. THE SIX WEEKS special session of the U.N. General Assembly just adjourned in New York failed to come up with any permanent solutions to the problems of how to make member countries pay their assessments. As of May 31, 11 nations owed a total of $556,000 on 1961 assessments, and 30 nations owed a total of $5 million on 1962 assessments. r r The special session finally adopted seven resolutions which will tide the U.N. over through Dec. 31. This year's assessments are now $11 million in arrears. But the same problem for next year will be back on the agenda of the new General Assembly convening in mid-September. It is generally admitted that it will take a long time to put the U.N. on a sound working basis. Illustrating V Air Editorials Cause Concern By FULTON LEWIS, JR. WASHINGTON - Sen. Tom Dodd, never one to mince words, is blunt: the high-paid moguls of radio and television have a responsibility to the American public. They must carefully check not only the vocal cords but the ideological loyalties of those who present news and views to the American people. Senator Dodd, acting chairman of the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, makes this observation as he. ponders the story of Robert Taber, a former CBS newsman. Dodd first became familiar with Taber in 1960 when his subcommittee opened a probe into r the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. INVESTIGATION revealed that Taber, a top-ranking newsman at CBS, had a long criminal record, including conviction for kidnap­ ing, auto theft and armed robbery. Taber, called before the subcommittee, denied that his group was financed with Castro gold. When this testimony was contradicted under oath, Taber fled to Cuba, taking with him $19,000 in Fair Play funds. The subcommittee continued its investigation into Fair Play while Taber served Castro in Havana. It discovered the Then last year Taber returned to the United States. Called for testimony in executive session, he continued to mouth the Castro r line. In releasing Taber's testimony the other Dodd declared: day, Senator the height of last October's Cuban crisis, critical of U.S. "rocket-rattling." He told his audience that "Castro is no mad dog; he's a courageous patriotic man. patriotic to Cuba heavily infiltrated communists. group was by long-time "It is something to ponder that a man like Taber would worm his way, into a top position on the CBS staff, get himself assigned as a CBS correspondent in Cuba preceding the Castor takeover, and then have his totally pro- Castro presentation purveyed to the American public by one of our great television networks." TABER IS by no means the only newsman to advocate pro- Castro views, even at this late date. There is William Mandel, identified communist, who just as George Washington was to our fore- fa thers. x "The worst you can say about Castro is that he gave Cuba back to'the Cubans."

By RALPH W. LOEW. D.D. THE GESTAPO OFFICERS waited until the benediction had been pronounced. Then they quickly stepped to the chancel and told the pastor to come with them. The minister took a Bible from the altar. As he passed the front pew where his 13-year-old son was'seated with his mother, he thrust the book into the boy's hand, saying, "Now, you begin." Today that youth is a fearless pastor and, if you asked him how this conviction had grown in his life, he would quickly tell you of the last time he had heard word from his father, This true where they can find: a foi An environment for a search excellence.
